Teen Crush Poem

Some may think it's just a poem by a teenager in lust. Yes, it's corny and exaggerated. However, it's not an excuse to talk about a crush. I've only met him once. For me, this poem means something, because I wrote it in the midst of my confusion about my strong feelings. I barely know the guy, yet, and this is cliche, I can't get him out of my mind. I'm usually very casual with guys, but I had to try really hard to act normal. It seems like a love poem, but I can say "good times" reading it.

This is how I feel about my crush as well.... He has the most amazing deep voice and smile. When he looks at me I feel like I might either faint or melt... He looks like he is 18 but he is...

Love? No. Fate? I Think So

I knew the day we met
That we were meant to be
I knew our fate was set
That you were the one for me

I didn't even know you
I only knew your name
I wasn't sure what to do
I didn't know who to blame

I knew I thought you attractive
I could tell that you were nice
The butterflies were so active
That I couldn't think twice

Everything I did that day
Didn't show you who I am
Every time you came my way
My heart began to ram

My actions weren't natural
My reactions weren't real
I felt so very terrible
But my heart I did not wield

And when the group said goodbye to me
My eyes were fixed on you
I knew I was trying to see
If you felt the same way too

I liked you when I saw your face
But maybe it was the touch
My heart had begun to race
I already liked you too much

I knew the day we met
That we were meant to be
I knew our fate was set
As friends, as lovers, as enemies

This is how I feel about my crush as well.... He has the most amazing deep voice and smile. When he looks at me I feel like I might either faint or melt... He looks like he is 18 but he is not. I'm still going through shock when I found out that we're both 16. I never thought he would be in my grade and age, while still looking incredibly handsome.
This poem is now one of my favorites on here so keep up the good work and as my family says to me, "Never stop writing girl!! For if you do, you will lose a spark you never knew you had."

My story is going to be like all the others out there. I like this guy at school, and when I first met him, I liked him immediately but I acted like I hated him. I regret that now, because I really like him, but I am not really friends with him so we can't talk that much. He is so hot! Imagine a guy with perfect dark-ish skin, brown eyes, dark brown hair, and a perfect personality. We both get good grades, we both think the exact same way, we both have never watched a Super Bowl in our entire life; we have tons of similarities and it would take like five pages to list them all. He is like the boy version of me! ( except I have blonde hair and light skin and blue eyes) I have been going crazy trying to get him to notice me, or at least talk to me every once in a while. I think it's working because in one of my classes with him, he always turns around and talks to me. I resist the urge to tell him how I really feel, because I am afraid he will laugh in my face. Also, my whole grade thinks I like a different guy, and he likes me so I don't want to hurt his feelings or make him hate me.

Me to Katy. I have a crush on a 5th grader and I'm in the 7th grade. I don't know if he likes me though. He knows I like him but he has a girlfriend. He is so sweet and cute. I can't barely even talk to him because I don't know what to say. What should I do??????

This is funny because I got on here looking for poems that like your friend boyfriend (In all fairness he was my boyfriend first so...) Then I seen this and automatically thought about the guy I first seen in the lunch line. I am a high schooler and in high school... ppl are aggressive for food. So him and his group come up and try to cut me. So I turned to about flipping out on them then I seen him and I shut my mouth and stared. He was laughing with this jerk in my child development class. I just felt like if he was to ask me out right then and there I would say DUH! He isn't even that cute and he hangs out with the druggies so he is the last person I would expect to feel this way about. Then one day I was staring at him after letting him cut me in line and seen.... the last name of a girl I really hate. Turns out he is her cousin. Kill me now

I have a crush on a boy in the other six grade class. I think he is cute but I don't know if he likes me or not. I try to talk to him except I never know what to say. This poem is actually how I feel about him.

There is this guy I like, he is like my best friend, and probably the greatest guy I've met. He is super sweet, charming, HILARIOUS, and so so smart. Well he has become my best friend and we are really close. Anyone who talks to us or doesn't know us very well thinks that we are going out. I like him so much but I don't know what he thinks of me. I'm scared to ask because I don't know If I'll like the answer...

There is this guy at school I like. He knows I like him. But he has never said he liked me or anything. I doubted our friendship and whether or not he was playing me. Some say he is and some say he is not. We are friends and I don't know if he likes me back. He keeps on touching me and smiling at me at random moments, but I still am afraid that he likes my friend. Every girl likes him, but not the way I do! He knows I am special so, does he like me? I do not know...

I have a crush on one of my brothers friends, but he is in 5th grade and I'm in 7th. It really makes me sad and I doubt he really likes me in that way. but he thinks all the same ways I do and he backs me up. He is one of those people that you miss after they leave. but now I'm not sure if I love him or if we are just friends. I guess I really haven't thought about it. not that I would mind if he loved me:) [I have only met him during an hour-long car ride to take them to boyscout camp]
